The Oak Ridge Boys to Make a Stop at Rapides Parish Coliseum

The Oak Ridge Boys to Make a Stop at Rapides Parish Coliseum

The legendary country and gospel group, The Oak Ridge Boys, will perform all their hits live at the Rapides Parish Coliseum in Alexandria, LA at 8 PM on Saturday, October 22.

Theirs is one of the most distinctive and recognizable sounds in the music industry. The four-part harmonies and upbeat songs of The Oak Ridge Boys have spawned dozens of Country hits and a Number One Pop smash, earned them Grammy, Dove, CMA, and ACM awards and garnered a host of other industry and fan accolades. Every time they step before an audience, the Oaks bring four decades of charted singles, and 50 years of tradition, to a stage show widely acknowledged as among the most exciting anywhere. And each remains as enthusiastic about the process as they have ever been.

“When I go on stage, I get the same feeling I had the first time I sang with The Oak Ridge Boys,” says lead singer Duane Allen. “This is the only job I’ve ever wanted to have.”
